Stuff I got in the mail!

I have been meaning to blog about this fabulous giveaway I won recently, and had the photos set up in the post, but forgot to come along and add text! 

A month or so ago, Artisan Whimsy, a fun, informative forum had it's grand opening and there was all kinds of stuff happening.  I was totally surprised when I got a note saying that I had won a huge giveaway...$150 in merchandise credit from the totally sweet and gracious Melinda Orr!  Man, did I have a hard time choosing, I was like a kid in a candy store...or a jewelry designer in a tool store!

When I opened my box, I decided to document....

Ooh, what can it be!!!

The main things I was going!  New wrap and tap pliers, hole punch in a size I didn't that small size ball pein, a riveting hammer and a cool texturing one!

Other stuff I wanted to try included the Vintaj patinas!

I told Melinda to surprise me with a bunch of copper blanks and what ever she wanted with the rest, and boy did she!  Lots of very cool items, including the fun, colorful cording and a braided leather piece.  Thanks, Melinda! I've played with all the tools, but haven't had a chance to do much else!  I am looking forward to creating with everything you sent!

If you haven't checked out Artisan Whimsy, you definitely should...loads of information, tutorials, eye candy, beady chat, and more!  Happy Monday!!
